My friend Bruce has written a powerful book for anyone who wants to live a purposeful life. From the book jacket: 'Every teacher has a core gift -- a specific and identifiable attribute of their teaching style -- which is tied to both their talents and their difficult life experiences. Identifying and intentionally using this core gift provides powerful results in both the learner's and teacher's life -- moments which can learning to levels not commonly seen in classrooms, social services offices, or mentoring on street corners." It's true. You'll see how, in this wonderful book.
